EME Boss and Wizkid’s former record label manager, Banky W is presently under fire for revealing that Wizkid still owes his label (EME) 3 more albums. The singer and politician said this on an interview with veteran show host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. In his words, Banky W said Wizkid had a contract to do 5 albums but the artiste left the label immediately after doing 2 solo albums.

The only thing I want to hear from Banky W is “EME nearly killed another dream” just like other record label.— IYKE NWOKO (@WonderboyIyke) April 21, 2022
Look at how Runtown, he refuse to give us the album, who knows the demons he’s fighting, is it from the past or what, he hasn’t be outspoken since Eric Manny saga.
Speaking further, Banky W said it seems Wizkid didn’t want to stay at EME at a point in time and he doesn’t want to force anyone who is not interested in staying at a label. Banky W who was with his wife Adesua-Etomi Wellinghton maintained that he and Wizkid are still in good relationship despite several rumours.
